Tension control is required in a wide variety of processes, from simple winding and unwinding applications to more complex multi-zone systems. High closed-loop control quality is essential for the quality of the product produced. With mapp Web Handling, B&R offers a solution that makes it easy to implement closed-loop tension control solutions and adapt them to the respective process.

Learning objectives and content

  • Participants will learn the basic physical properties of closed-loop tension control.
  • Participants will receive an overview of possible winding applications and the associated terminology.
  • Participants will become familiar with the construction of web processing machines.
  • Participants will learn the difference between tension control and dancer control.
  • Participants will be able to adjust the control device independently.
  • Participants will understand the difference between each machine configuration.
